MINOR INTERNATIONALS

Postby LEATHERSTOCKING » Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:16 am

Can anyone help with teams, scorers & referee of the Eire XI vs. Scotland match in Dublin in April 1940? Also Queen`s Park`s Jimmy Gilmour played in a Scottish semi professional international(bit of an oxymoron for an amateur) in the 1980s; can anyone help with this game`s details? Thanking you in anticipation.

regards jimmy gilmour

the last Queen`s Park player to turn out for Scotland was Jimmy Gilmour who came on as a second half substitute for the "semi professionals" vs. England @ Scarborough on 4th June 1983!

Hearty thank you for theseTribacolour! I I have the Dublin attendance as 21,360 so it might be dyslexia kicking in: I have the date as 28/4/1940. Just needed to know Gilmour`s opponents so full team not so important. I`m only too well aware that Gilmour is the last Spiders to tug a blue jersey over his head & just can`t understand how the SFA can keep iignoring the talengt now, sadly, languishing in the 4th division. Before Gilmour, Queen`s last Internationalist was Jim Cruickshank in 1960 @ U23.

I have four other players who were in the squad but have no details of how many or which of the three tournament games they played in:

John Brogan (St Johnstone)
Maurice Johnston (Partick Thistle)
Colin Harris (Raith Rovers)
Eric Morris (Ayr United)
John Colquhoun (Stirling Albion)
